The Vice Chancellor of the University of Agriculture (UNAAB), Abeokuta, Ogun State, Professor Olusola Oyewole recently advised students to focus on their studies and spend less of their time on social networking sites such as Facebook.
Oyewole, who was represented by Prof. Bolanle Akeredolu-Ale, disclosed this at a seminar tagged: Role Modeling Lecture for the Girl-Child, organised by a Ph.D student and 2010 Award Fellow, Bolanle Ogunlolu-Akinyemi.
The seminar was sponsored by African Women in Agricultural Research and Development.
Oyewole said, “Facebook and other social networks are good, but I will advise you to leave Facebook and face your studies. You know yourself more than anyone else, so desist from comparing yourselves with others.”
The school’s Councillor, Modesta Ofodile, reportedly urged the students to engage in reading in their spare time which she said will serve them well when examinations eventually start.
According to Ofodile: “If you waste your time thinking there is time, examinations will catch you unawares.”
